Ideas, Updates & Analysis


This really could be the last chance to get in AMZN below $2,000.

Just look at the 1 year chart.

This stock doubled in the last 12 months.

What about a pullback? Is it overvalued?

I don't see the stock taking a break.

They are so diversified and dominant as well.

Diversified Dominance

Did I just come up with a new phrase? Probably not.

Also, with AAPL breaking the $1 Trillion Market Cap barrier, I'm betting AMZN will not be far behind.

Symbol Surfing was cited in this article by Jon Swartz at Barrons.

What if you don't want to put $1,996.49 into 1 stock?

The answer is fractional shares!

At this time, Robinhood does not offer this option, but I found another broker who does.

Stockpile - Your Favorite Stocks By The Dollar

With Stockpile, you can buy $200 worth of AMZN which is about 10% of 1 share.

If AMZN is at $3,000 in 1 year, your fractional shares of stock will be worth about $300.

If AMZN is at $1,000 in 1 year, your fractional shares of stock will be worth about $100.

I can't think of a good reason to not own at least some amount of this company.

I have traded this stock over the years for nice gains but I would have been better off never selling.

Hindsight is great, isn't?

At some point in the future, people may ask "When did AAPL hit 1 trillion in market cap?".

It happened today Thu, August 2, 2018.

$1 Trillion is $1,000,000,000,000.

Many investors expected this to happen, especially recently.

Just 10 short years ago, in 2008, the market cap was around $100 billion.

What an amazing achievement in a decade.

Also, many investors strongly believe AAPL is still undervalued.

The P/E Ratio is still under 20. Wow!

So do you own AAPL?

If yes, congrats.

It has been a great ride and probably will continue to be.

If no, why not?

The other 3 companies that are within striking distance are AMZN, GOOG and MSFT.

Each of those 3 stocks are in the $800 billion market cap range.

Meanwhile, Apple is on it's way to it's 2nd trillion.

Thu, Aug 2, 2018 AAPL @ $207.39

Thu, Aug 2, 2018 GOOG @ $1,226.15

Thu, Aug 2, 2018 MSFT @ $107.57

Here is the math.

In order to figure out what stock price will bump AAPL's market cap to $1 Trillion, we need to know the number of Shares Outstanding.

Shares Outstanding: 5,074,013,000

https://www.nasdaq.com

Now, let's divide $1 Trillion by the Shares Outstanding.

$1,000,000,000,000 / 5,074,013,000 = $197.08

$197.08

Apple closed at a new record high today at $193.98

It needs to move up just $3.10 which is about 1.6%.

This could happen as early as tomorrow.

Either way, it really doesn't matter.

It's just a number.

Also, there are a few other stocks I like that may get to that valuation as well like Amazon, Google, Microsoft.

So let's say you are a little cautious about buying any of these stocks right now.

Another way to get involved in this rally in tech while minimizing single stock risk is buying the Technology Sector SPDR.

The symbol is XLK.

State Street Global Advisors is the company that offers this ETF as well as many others.

Walmart has dropped down to $85 from it's recent 52 week high and record high of almost $110.

It has recently acquired Flipkart for $16 billion. (Amazon reportedly made a bid as well which may have increased the price.)

Speaking of Amazon, guess who else offers 2 day free shipping now? Yes. Walmart.

And the radio commercial I heard today mentioned that there is no annual membership fee like 5 times.

A nice jab at Amazon.

While these 2 retailers battling it out over prices, I (almost) always remember to login to my ebates account first to get an extra 2% to 10% off my online purchases.

Savings on top of savings...I like it.

Anyway, I'm betting that this sell-off is a bit overdone.

Especially since other large retailers like COST and M have received positive reactions to their recent earnings announcements.

Something else I noticed on the 1 year chart is the price is close to a support trend. Maybe we get a nice bounce off of it?

Earnings for WMT is tomorrow. Either way, it should be exciting.

If I am wrong about this in the short term, I am happy to hold this stock.

After all, the holidays are not that far away.

So I finally checked out what the Amazon Prime Store Card is all about.

Here is my review.

It's pretty simple.

5% back every day on Amazon purchases.

Plus, I (almost) always remember to login to my ebates account first to get an extra 2% to 10% off my Amazon purchases.

I assumed it was through Amazon since Amazon is into everything nowadays.

The company behind the credit card is actually Synchrony Financial.

I have credit cards with other major companies but I have to say I was very impressed with the application process and most of all their account management website.

As a programmer, I have a special appreciation for a well thought out design.

(I hope you feel that way about Symbol Surfing!)

After doing more research, it turns out that SYF offers the same type of service to other major retailers.

There is a decent dividend yield of almost 2% and a very low P/E ratio of 12%.

This company just hit an all-time high and has had a nice retracement.

I think it is time to get in.

Hey, if Amazon trusts them, I do too.

Also, SYF is in Warren Buffett's Portfolio.

Tyler "Ninja" Blevins was on CNBC today and I am a new fan.

This 26 years old gamer is well spoken and knowledgeable about business and, of course, is one of the best gamers in the world.

Ninja breaks down why Fortnite is like everywhere.

Also, he answers why people watch other people play video games.

And he makes $500,000 per month...playing video games.

That's a lot of V-Bucks.

As a stock market investor, I'm trying to figure out what companies stand to benefit the most from this gigantic gaming trend.

The companies that come to mind for me from this interview are Amazon, Google, Twitter & Facebook.

There are many others as well.

Kayla Tausche asks how he convinced his parents to allow him to spend so much time gaming when he was 16 years old.

He explains that he maintained his job at Noodles & Co and stayed in college while competing and streaming.

He also plays soccer in his free time.

This was my favorite Ninja quote from the interview.

"To all the kids out there, you can't just drop everything and focus on playing video games for a living. You want to make sure you are securing your future and putting in the extra time to make this happen."

He even donates to charity.

This starts out to be a video about Jeff Bezos being the richest man ever in the US.

Then there's the part about how Rockefeller's 1.5 billion net worth in 1918 is more relatively speaking.

As for today, there are a few publicly traded companies in the Dow 30 that have a market cap less than Jeff Bezos' personal net worth.

Travelers (TRV)

Caterpillar (CAT)

American Express (AXP)

As far as Jeff Bezos' company Amazon.com, the market cap is in $900 billion range.

Obviously, they're selling way more than books!

Below are a few of Amazon's products and services.

Look at that list.

I want to go shopping to buy some stuff.

Usually, Amazon has the lowest price on just about everything.

Also, I have figured out a way to save even more money.

The answer is to simply buy through ebates.

By visiting ebates.com first then going to amazon.com, I get anywhere from 2% to 10% off my purchases.

It is real and it is amazing and easy and free.

Wait until you get your first big fat check from ebates.

Check it out now using my ebates affiliate link and you will get a $10 bonus check after your first purchase.
